The Raaft Commitment

As we strive to become a global market leader, we recognise our responsibility to provide roof terrace and podium systems that support these goals and to contribute towards a better environment for the future of our communities.

All Raaft products are developed and manufactured with the environment at their heart, using materials chosen for their

  • durability – to reduce the frequency of replacement due to damage or wear and tear
  • renewability – to decrease the use of finite natural resources
  • proximity – to reduce carbon footprint before, during and after manufacture
  • recyclability – to ensure a high percentage can be reprocessed at the end of the products’ lifespan

We are committed to achieving net-zero carbon emissions across all our commercial operations.

We are also currently working on achieving ISO14001 certification (set to be complete in 2022) to ensure our environmental management systems are in effect.

Porcelain – a naturally environmentally friendly product

Porcelain decking and tiles are two Raaft products that perfectly demonstrate our commitment to environmental sustainability and low carbon footprint.

Porcelain is:

  • made from natural, plentiful ingredients sourced near to the point of manufacture
  • a highly durable material that outlasts many of its alternatives and therefore contributes to reduced waste due to product lifespan replacement
  • a low-maintenance product that requires no harmful chemical treatment to clean or preserve it

Our porcelain manufacturer:

  • reprocesses 100% of the unbaked waste clay generated during manufacturing
  • reuses process water from other factories and recovers 100% of its own wastewater
  • recovers 24,000 MWh of energy annually through cogeneration
  • generates additional energy through its own photovoltaic plant
